    Plesk Obsidian 18.0.34 (April 2021) offers Magento 2.1 (Release: 2015) for installation. But Magento 2.1 only runs under PHP 7.0 (Release: 2015). This means that the software recommended is now over 5 years old and has serious security gaps - and is still recommended by Plesk! Very weak. Magento is currently available version 2.4.2 and runs under PHP 7.4 and 8.0, but not with Plesk.

    Error: Unable to install the app because its installation requirements are not met. Contact your hosting provider to resolve this problem.

    The app requires the linux operating system. Currently, you have windows.

    Hi there Hesa!

    Thanks for noticing this.

    Indeed, the Magento app in Plesk Applications can be installed on a Linux server only.

    Uhmz... Running the latest Plesk version (Plesk Obsidian 18.0.42 Update #1) however when I want to install Magento v2.10 (or anything else) it will show:

    Downloading magento...

    The application is being downloaded for installation. Please do not access your hosted files until the installation is finished.

    100% completed

    But it won't continue, it does not install anything; it simply hangs there. Not doing anything else. It seems to be broken.
    Also when will (as Falco asked already on the 6th of April 2021) new Magento versions be added? The latest (current) version of Magento is v2.4.x.

    The "newest" version which is available in the Plesk applications is Magento v2.10 which was released back in June 2016 and became end-of-life in June 2019. Seems the applications are a "little" outdated by almost 3 years! So updates whatsoever...

    We are paying every time a serious price increase for Plesk licenses. According to the FAQ these price increases are needed to make Plesk "a better experience" and "suit the need of modern hosting", however given the fact that;

    1. the Magento application installer does not work at all (see above)
    2. the "latest" version available from the installer is version 2.10 (~3 years EOL)

    I was expecting much better from Plesk and I therefor expect these things get fixed and updated as soon as possible. Customers cannot even use it now!

    I hope this is followed-up as soon as possible as the Plesk Application tool is simply worthless in it's current state and therefor completely and utterly useless!

    Regards,
    Michel

    Really sad to see that Plesk does not care about updating installer apps... Magento installation is not possible thru Plesk!

    Horribly outdated.

    Yeah Plesk keeps increasing their pricing every year, so the complete Plesk experience is better and easier...

    ...however simple things like installing Magento within Plesk is not available. So I am wondering what justifies the price increase? Nothing really new is being added as far as I can tell. At least now what our customers think is useful. They already "complain" about the new/upcoming price increase in January (2023) and to be honest; we fully understand our customers.

    Plesk has become uber expensive. In the last 6 years or so the cost of their licenses has increased between 800% and 1200%. Which is really absurd. Since those price increases we have lost over 50% of our Plesk licenses/customers. Luckily the majority made the move to DA instead. So we have them still aboard.

    I doubt Plesk will exist in a few years if they keep this up...

    Please consider removing this post.

    The Magento 2.1 is well outdated and with the required services for Magento 2.4 I don't think we can do a one-click installation.

    But using Plesk is really helpful when its comes to Magento 2 latest version.
